The Supreme Court has denied an appeal from a Guantanamo Bay prisoner claiming federal appellate judges are ignoring a demand that detainees be given an opportunity to challenge their confinement.

Many foreign terror suspects have been held without charges at the U.S. naval base in Cuba for 12 years.

The justices on Monday rejected an appeal from Abdul al Qader Hussain of Yemen, who was captured in Pakistan and denies that he ever was affiliated with al-Qaida or the Taliban.
